USP Adds 800 New Records to Food Fraud Database
The United States Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) has added nearly 800 new records, mostly from 2011 and 2012, to its Food Fraud Database, increasing the size of the database by 60%. The original database contained 1,300 records, covering fraud reports issued between 1980 and 2010. The database compiles data taken from publicly available reports in both scholarly journals and general media, with key findings published in the Journal of Food Science.

The Accelerated Solvent Extraction Applications Summary Notebook includes 19 application methods for extracting fats and environmental contaminants from a variety of food and beverage samples. The Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ ASE™ Accelerated Solvent Extractor System is an automated extraction technique that uses elevated temperatures and pressures to achieve extractions in very short periods of time. The result is faster extraction times and a significant reduction in solvent use and labor.

Adopting Dynamic and Lean Gas Chromatography Operations that Do More with Less
Tuesday, February 19, 2013
11:00 AM EST; 8:00 AM PST
In this web seminar, we will illustrate some innovative ways to reduce the total number of GC systems used to accomplish the same level of productivity, share the existing components for maximum efficiency, and quickly redistribute application workload as needed — all with minimal capital investment. We will also show how instrument downtime for maintenance activities, whether planned or unplanned, can basically be reduced to zero. Join us for this discussion to evolve your lab into a dynamic and lean operation with fewer systems and lower operating costs.
